I love when a photographer uses lines and texture to compose his shot, and this photograph shared by arex is a beautiful example of how to make this work. Notice the differing textures between the rocky beach and the water of the ocean (not to mention the cloudless sky), and how the beachline and the horizon converge … so well done.
As we come to the close of 2009, it’s time to start dreaming about far-off lands to visit in the coming year. And I have to say, this great shot of Venice homes shared by tysonwilliams.com provides the perfect inspiration.
Come on: you didn’t think I could let “Snopocalypse” or “#snOMG!” or the Nor’easter Known by So Many Names get by without featuring it here on Gadling, did you? Luckily for us, Cazimiro shared this beautiful image of the amazing snowfall that pummeled the east coast of the United States this past weekend in our Gadling Flickr pool. Talk about walkin’ in a winter wonderland.
This year, I’m feeling just full of the holiday spirit, so in looking for tonight’s Photo of the Day, I decided to base my search on holiday phrases. While this beautiful photograph, entitled “blue december” and shared by kanelstrand isn’t exactly what I had in mind, you can certainly see why I was drawn to this image with its strong lines and vivid colours. A really arresting shot.
This beautiful shot shared by Code N in the Gadling Flickr pool is a masterful example of showing how a photographer can maximize and manipulate the light to the utmost advantage. Code N has perfectly exposed all the streetlights, the sunset in the background, and the reflections in the water in Shanghai to stunning effect. Beautifully done.
